Engineering Tech A Q & A Forum devoted to Engineering Issues that don't necessarily fall into Aircooled or Watercooled Tech. Got a problem? Or an engineering question? Even a buildings or property engineering question? Then ask in here. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

ok cool,then just ask the builder in question if he knows what a manometer is, and how to correctly use one.

Not really quite what I said is it. I suggested that he speak to the builder to see if he could have a gas safe fella out to it.

I'm sure Del will do what he feels is right to do with it.....I'm out on this one.

no,what you said is that assuming he's been around the trades long enough he cant really get it wrong.....

Sounds like some crap got in the pipe when it was cut, you need to check inlet pressure on the fire

Gas safe fully qualified plumber heating engineer has been over to do some other work and had a good look and checked all the pipe work. In his opinion it is nothing to do with anything the builder has done and he has tested and checked any joints all the way back as far as he can see.

He reckons that it is something to with the Thermo coupler or some dust / lint has gone down the tube and might need a simple blow out or a little more attention in the form of a service.
